Juneathon. Day 24. I'm nothing if not consistent

Wahoo!!! 6 days to go!!! After a crappy journey both in and out of work yesterday, I was delighted to have run yesterday morning and that was the only thing that got me out of bed this morning. Although that was after I'd got out of bed to turn off the alarm, then got back into bed after deciding that I'd do something tonight instead and then got back out of bed again as I couldn't sleep (after at least 2-3 minutes of trying) and decided that I may as well run anyway as the alternative was a hot and slightly worse kind of run tonight. There was a lot of thought processes involved in those first 5 minutes of my waking existence this morning but I don't think my lovely, nearly 33 week pregnant girlfriend quite appreciated my dilemma and promptly went back to sleep.

I seem to have established my level this Juneathon though. Out of my 24 days, I've run the same route 15 times!!!! I've looked at the times involved too and if you take out my angry fastest run and not coincidentally, my slowest run the following morning, they've all been within 1 minute and 17 seconds of each other. Today's and yesterday's were within 1 second!

I'm finding Juneathon as horrible as I thought I would but I'm glad I'm still going. Although I haven't run everyday, the mental strength to either cycle or run and then make sure the blog is done every single day has been really tough. With only 6 days left, I know mentally that I can get to the end now which is wonderful after my 4 day attempt in 2009. I just wish this had been done as Octoberthon as we wouldn't have to deal with the heat!
